The Jackson Hole Chamber of Commerce in collaboration with the Teton County Emergency Management Plan has launched an Economic Recovery Task Force in response to COVID-19.
The purpose of the Economic Recovery Task Force (ERTF) is to support business, provide resources, and plan for better opportunities in order to shorten our community's recovery time and to mitigate losses.
The ERTR consists of the below local leaders who represent various business industries, elected officials, communications experts, and community partners. Returning to work will be gradual and will vary by business. It will require continued social distancing, expanded use of personal protective equipment, and other counter-measures. Planning for this needs to begin now and and the ERTF is doing just that.

The Chamber has conducted focus groups to gather data and information from businesses and the community.
The ERTF and 4 related Focus Groups have created a Community Business Drop Box for re-opening resources by sector: Public Health Guidelines can be found in the same location. Please visit here.
